[Pitched] as a 'Green' & Quiet Workstation - is it?

I came across this article earlier this morning while looking for ideas for workstation, that is powerful yet quiet at the same time. The article author pitches it as both, in addition to being green, by using high-efficiency, low-energy components. It "reads" well to me, but I cannot convince mysel...

Except for a few small scratches from installation (tight fit) it works perfectly and is most definitely silent . As to why I am selling, I upgraded the rig it was in to a quad core ...

I beg to differ with elemental and Dan's Data :) One needs to do proper loading, several tests on each paste and then calculate results. If you want to shave off the last 1-3 C off your temps, consider the application of the paste & spreading it (e.g. with pressure on the sink, not with your finger...

I am getting ready to build a couple of new systems for clients and realized out am out of my old trusty Arctic Silver 5. The new systems will be E8400 driven and built around one of the DFI boards.

Which is quieter? 2 x 80mm or 1 x 120mm???

I am planning a new case for my current rig, one that is quieter than the Antec SX630 I currently have (plus I need more space). The SX630 has been modded to accept a Panaflo L1A 120mm intake and a Panaflo M1A 92mm exhaust. It is quiet, but I think I can do better. I am considering either of the fol...

My bad - I meant that Channel Well manufactures for Antec - just like Chenming/Chieftec make Antec's cases. The CW and ANtec PSUs are rated identically. But Fortron has gotten such a great write up, I think I am going to go with their 400W model.
